    When one of the early computers stopped working, it felt like the program was wrong. The fact was that a bug was crowling inside and generating electrical problems. Once the bug was removed and the computer fixed, the program worked again. Since then, a problem in a computer program is called a bug. The word de-bug means removing the bugs from the software program.
